Favorites by length of show?

Is there any way to specify Favorites to only record if the show is longer than a certain number of minutes?

I set up Thomas the Tank Engine to record as a Favorite for my daughter. Usually the show is on for 30 minutes but sometimes it is used as a 5 minute filler on the kids channel. Therefore I get all of these 5 minute shows that I don't really want - it would be great if I could say "only record a Fave if it is at least 15 mins long" - can you do that in Sage?
New Server - Sage9 on unRAID 2xHD-PVR, HDHR for OTA
Old Server - Sage7 on Win7Pro-i660CPU with 4.6TB, HD-PVR, HDHR OTA, HVR-1850 OTA
Clients - 2xHD-300, 8xHD-200 Extenders, Client+2xPlaceshifter and a WHS which acts as a backup Sage server

There's nothing in the Favorite settings to allow that. But it should be fairly straightforward to set up a Sage Job Queue or Dirmon job to automatically delete recording files smaller than some specified size. If you're skilled with batch files or VBScript, you could probably do it with a Windows Scheduled Task.
